3 March 2003 Overview of the ANITA project
Author Affiliations +
The ANITA project is designed to investigate ultra-high energy (>1017 eV) cosmic ray interactions throughout the universe by detecting the neutrinos created in those interactions. These high energy neutrinos are detectable through their interactions within the Antarctic ice sheet, which ANITA will use as a detector target that effectively converts the neutrino interactions to radio pulses. This paper will give an overview of the project including scientific objectives, detection description and mission design.
